The Okanagan Valley is a special place in BC – I think it has a little bit of magic surrounding it. In summer and early fall, it becomes the fruit basket and wine glass of Canada.

Food Photography Notes I’m not going to give a blow by blow because it is Wordless Wednesday but, I’ve been playing with some Florabella Actions in Photoshop for these image (except the top one – that was all done in LR).
